#### Explanation:

#"to determine if "(4,1)" is a solution substitute"#

#"x = 4 and y=1 into the system of equations and "#

#"if they are both satisfied then it is a solution"#

#•color(white)(x)x+y=-3#

#(4,1)to4+1=5!=-3#

#•color(white)(x)x+3y=6#

#(4,1)to4+3=7!=6#

#rArr(4,1)" is not a solution"#
